Today, Denise and I are finishing up my presentation materials for Monday’s TechWomen Mentor-Mentee Workshop. I will be training 37 women from 6 Middle Eastern and North African countries and territories and their Technical Mentors from dozens of Silicon Valley companies the day before they start work.
Many of the Mentors were able to join yesterday’s opening event in San Francisco but for some, Monday will be the first time they meet. The workshop will offer a welcome, introductory activity (“icebreaker”), plus an hour of structured discussion so that the Mentors and Mentees can plan their work. Most of them have been in email discussions since we announced the matches several weeks ago; tomorrow we get down to cases. The afternoon will feature talks about social networking and mentoring. It will be a fun and interesting day.
